*UPDATE* Still a few hours left to pledge!

We've reached our goal, but you can still be a part of the event by pledging!

Data Garden seeks to engage people to explore the relationship between plants music and technology with an outdoor arts festival, The Switched-On Garden on October 14, 2012. 

Attendees will connect with their natural environment through live music, performance and sculpture that blurs the distinction between biological and digital worlds. Site-specific art installations will be highly interactive and educational. 

The first Switched-On Garden took place on 10/16/2011 at Philadelphia’s Bartram’s Garden and was attended by over 700 people of all ages and backgrounds. Your investment will help us make this event possible, attract leading international artists, expand public interaction with urban green space and keep the event free and open to the public.

We understand that not everyone who supports this event will be able to attend. With that in mind, we're offering special edition memorabilia and audio documentation that will allow you to be part of The Switched-On Garden wherever you are in the world.

Thanks so much for helping kickstart The Switched-On Garden 2012! Stay in touch and follow Data Garden at DataGarden.org or on Twitter and Facebook.
